Not too difficult and it takes about 30 hours give or take a few so it's not long compared to other RPGs.

01-22-2007, 08:07 PM
As a mate of mine said it was really hard to complete.

Wreckon, for now my eM Kung Fu is weak. Once I have developed my skills under the teachings of the Master Dracgon, the apprentice shall rise up and attempt to slay the master... lol, as if... :p

It's easy, but I found it boring as hell and just stopped playing after like 5 hours.

I liked it, beat it in about 25 hours. Make sure you spend some time leveling and do some side quests or something (the wind and fire temples are good), because the first phase of the final boss is the hardest part and playing through normally you won't be high enough to kill her. (I was level 46 with all my characters when I did it, first got to her at 41.)

imo, the game is as hard as you make it, if you spend time leveling up it'll be quite easy. if you dont you just try to go through the game, it'll be quite hard. if your ust to playing RPG's like enchanted arms, then there's a good chance it'll be easy for you. but if ts your first time playing an rpg game like enchanted arms, then it can be quite hard. id say rent it and if you like it enough (you most likely wont finish it within a rental period, unless its from gamefly or gamesnflix) then buy it, I for one had the game reserved as i couldnt wait for it to come out (im a HUGE rpg fan!) and i found it a lil easy.

I shall bring 4 tears to your eyes when I turn your dew into Mello-yellow, turn your coke into diet pepsi, and worst of all, change your snickers into snack-size milky way! Tremble!

This summer, one of the first things i'm beating is [eM] or Enchanted Arms.

havnt gamesaved at all this yr :woop: also, i dont know why lol i might, ill have to go and see what golems i have (i dont even know anymore lol)

02-11-2007, 05:40 PM
I'm exactly 50% through so far and i think that its relatively easy but i hear that it gets harder. Also being an rpg fan it is a strong point for me =p

there are a couple of main point that you have to work hard but as other people have said, level up first and then go through the game and its much much easier.

02-18-2007, 03:52 PM
The thing that sux is the last like 1 hour in the game you get like 15% lol but yes, TRAIN WISELY the Queen Of Ice is strong.

Well ive heard many different things about this game.. But could i just get a quick answer, for its price, achievements, and time, is this game worth getting?

03-24-2007, 04:38 AM
Took me about 35 hours to complete. It's nothing special. See my response to another thread.

04-07-2007, 12:48 AM
Just completed the game mere minutes ago and I have to say I thought it was really, really good. Took about 45 hours for me to complete it but that is with exploring every nook and cranny, defeating all the God Orb golems, the elemental shrine golems, and the Holy Beast Shrine.

I'm tempted to go back and level up some of the cooler golems that I never got a chance to use, such as Omega, but I know I probably wont - maybe it's time to move on to another game :)

04-14-2007, 11:29 PM
I beat it within 30-35 hours. I liked it especially when I got to the Holy Beast Shrine. I did get Omega, and he's well worth it.

06-24-2007, 05:45 PM
I am sitting right at 37 hours and am facing the Ice Queen and my 4 characters are all level 45. She is very hard and will probably take a few more levels/items to beat.

08-20-2007, 08:27 AM
ok so how are the achievements...? are they sorta like for "example" you have to get 1 achievement in order to get another meaning: like you have to defeat 1 boss in order to beat another ..? or is it different? is it like for "example" if you don't do something or miss it you wont be able to get that achievement some thing like that?..... or is it kinda for "example" like you can beat the final boss even at the very beginning like you can't really beat him but you get option to choose to fight with him you know what i mean? so if guys don't get me let me know If you DO! Understand me....Then please answer My Question PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

Basically, as you go through the game and fight the various bosses, you get the achievments. Just when you get to the last one, chose 'never' when Toya asks you to kill him. This gives you the final 150pt achievment. Pretty easy 1000pts.

09-24-2007, 09:28 PM
Well it took me 36 hours I think to get everything and I didn't use a guide or walkthrough and now I'm helping a Friend play it because he wants the gamerscore!

10-20-2007, 12:17 PM
I'm 18% through the game at the moment after about eight hours played. I suspect that this will take me around 40-50 hours to complete the entire game ... bit of a timesink, but the achievements aren't all that hard so far - just time consuming ...

10-22-2007, 02:32 AM
Took me about 40 hours. I could of beaten it sooner but I messed around the secret dungeon and got that sadistic evil looking robot. Don't let the achievments steer you from this game. Its a great rent or borrow.

11-04-2007, 01:57 AM
no its not hard at all, i completed it like 4 months ago pretty easy if you ask me

11-05-2007, 08:13 PM
i didnt think it was too hard. some parts of the game were buts thats cuz i wasnt leveled where i should have been. i didnt finish it though =( sent it back to gamefly. if i find it anywhere for super cheap i might pick it up and finish it.

01-05-2008, 09:44 PM
i completed it today and it took me between 30-35 hours. it took me 25 hours to get to the last boss but then i needed a lot of levelling up at the casino which took a lot of time.

if you're prepared to sit there in menus for a few hours at the end of the game then it's not hard at all. just a tad time consuming.

01-07-2008, 05:52 AM
26 hours on my save file. I'm at the last boss, but again need to level up a lot first.

06-19-2008, 07:59 PM
kool i actually am going to rent this game and aim for the 1000

At the moment I just signed up for gamefly, am planning on a good 20k boost, and heard this one was easy. I guess I'm saving this one for after the initial renting and 1 day completion of every easy game, still going to get this if it only takes 30 hours for a 1k. A good RPG is never a bad thing =)

08-20-2008, 11:19 AM
Just finished the game:D took me 36 hours! and no its not THAT hard. This thing everybody says you should do in the casino in the start to make it easier. i didnt do it and the game wasent that hard until the end... i must admit, in the end a used the "casino trick" for about 3-4 hours

08-21-2008, 11:30 PM
Not too hard, took me 37 hours all side quests and casino stat boosting

04-29-2009, 06:38 AM
if all you want is the achievements, then it should take between 20-30 hours to complete. if you decide to do any of the side quests or complete other things it will take longer but these are not required to finish the main story.

04-29-2009, 07:44 AM
Wow you guys are really good I am at about 70% completion now (just beat Sayaka at the gates) and over 35 hours. Bear in mind this is my first jRPG and absolutely love it. Glad this was my first one it's been a great game and really looking forward to the ending.

11-16-2010, 07:06 PM
Took me just over 30 hours and the only challenge I found was beatin ur puppy and that wasn't because of the difficulty :Bounce:
